The practice of illumination (adding decoration to manuscripts) dates back to the early fifth century and continued into the Middle Ages, when scribes, monks, and other artists used richly colored pigments as well as gold and silver leaf to add decoration, initials, and illustration to the pages of books and Bibles. Today we continue their tradition in our own Bibles or books of choice.
We will spend two evenings practicing the basics of the craft. First, we will cover supplies and tools and talk about how we decide what artwork to create. Night two might get messy as we practice techniques with a plethora of products and share ideas to complete gorgeous artwork right in our Bibles. If you have a Bible or other book you plan to use for this craft, you may bring it along or use your new workshop journal.
Lots of samples and ideas will be provided in addition to a handmade journal for you to keep.
Jennifer Berte holds an M.A. in English/Literature and has taught at the college level for fifteen years. She enjoys facilitating workshops on writing, journaling, Bible study, and various art methods. In her words, “The best workshops build camaraderie and instill a passion for the subject, but of course they have to be fun.
